Best part of Milan for me!

The best but the most expensive at the same time! Worth it to try! Bla bla bla bla ..... Filling the tripadvisor limit and more and more and more... Annoying!

There's a reason Il Massimo del Gelato is well-known - it's simply amazing. Very high quality compared to the typical gelato in Milan. That being said, expect to pay more here than you would at any old gelateria. It's a bit outside the typical tourist area - but worth a visit for a nice walk. Nocchiola and fior di latte... More

Found it by chance, coming back to the hotel and seeing a mass of crazed people waiting in the street. Turned out they were waiting for one of northern Milano's better Gelato parlors. Nothing groundbreaking, but the texture was very pleasing - not too heavy, nice consistency - and the flavors very distinct. My favorites were the chocolate Fiji, Amaretto... More

The extreme in Gelato. Never ever seen such a variety of chocolate ice creams. Eight different chocolate tastes. It is a must visit. If in doubt eat all!!

Really good gelato. Saw the crowd standing on the sidewalk waiting to get in and knew it must be good. 2 scoops, cup or cone 2.80 euro and well worth it. Must have about 40 flavors.

I've been to this place twice and have to say they had some of the best gelato compared to the other 5 places I went to. Almost non existent seating area though - only one small bench that is good for 2 people. Service is average (never really found the service to be all that in Milan - compared to... More

Most pretentious ice cream place in Milano! Decor is worst than an arabian middle class brothel, ice cream is avarege, poor girls serving are dressed like 18 century maids and you feel so guilty for them that the cream tastes sour I don't need 10 bad chocolate flavors, I need a single good one
